The article reveals that Chevron and the University of California-Davis will develop advanced technology for converting cellulosic biomass into transportation fuels. The joint effort will coordinate with the California Biomass Collaborative to focus on renewable feedstocks available in California. The aim of the research is to develop commercially viable processes for producing transportation fuels from renewable resources such as new energy crops, forest and agricultural residues and municipal solid waste.
